    Smoked Venison Tenderloins

    So I'm not really a venison kind of guy except for venison summer sausage which I make and love. Decided to do some tenderloins I got from a friend. I put them in a plastic bag with coca cola and a Teriyaki marinade that I had in the fridge. Let sit in the fridge overnight. The next day I fired...

    Tough Casings

    Made a small batch of Reuben brats today and they came out real tasty but some of the casing were real tough. I am using Sausage Makers 32-35MM Natural Hog Casing. They are kind of old but they are kept in salt and in the fridge. Is this my problem, old casings? Their website says indefinite...

    Venison Pepperoni Question.

    I am making 5 lbs of venison pepperoni and the recipe calls for 1 cup dry milk powder. Can I use regular milk or fermento? How much? I made this before but I don't remember what I used. Guess I should update my journal. Thanks in advance.

    Slim Jims with sheep casings

    I usually use collagen casing when making my Slim Jims but they always seem to come out with tough casing. So this time I used sheep casing. I use sheep casing when I make breakfast sausage and have no problem stuffing. But using them this time was a real pain. I think the meat was too dry and I...

    Homemade electric sausage stuffer

    For me it was hard to stuff sausage by myself so I made this electric stuffer. I have a 5lb stuffer and you can't find a 5lb electric stuffer. This thing works real good but I am going to upgrade to a high torque electric wrench. I bought the foot switch from Northern Tool and hooked it up to a...

    Venison Summer Sausage

    Just finished making venison summer sausage using mostly backstrap with some pork fat. I know, why waste good backstrap for summer sausage. Around where I live deer are a real nuisance. The farmers are happy to get rid of them. Into the smoker and then after reaching temperature I put into the...
